The Royal Wind Music

NB: this concert takes place in the Jacobikerk instead of the Pieterskerk

In 1401, Seville decided to build a cathedral where the main mosque had previously stood. Santa María has now been the shining city centre for six hundred years and the third largest Christian church in Europe. Every stone tells a story, as Royal Wind Music knows. This Renaissance recorder ensemble guides us from the Patio de los Naranjos (Courtyard of the Orange Trees) to the chancel with Moorish-style improvisations, works from cathedral manuscripts and polyphony by heavyweights Guerrero, Morales and Fuenllana.

About the performers

An array of international musicians perform repertoire from the golden age of polyphony on an impressive collection of Renaissance recorders: together they are The Royal Wind Music. The group was founded in 1997 by Paul Leenhouts and has captivated a steadily-growing worldwide audience ever since with its performances of instrumental music from the period 1520-1640. Playing entirely from memory and without a conductor, The Royal Wind Music is also known for its engaging performances and ability to communicate with the audience.
